A Really Neat, Sentimental Football - People Article

This is Paul "The Freak" Friesen, writing in the Winnipeg Sun, finding an old University of Manitoba Bison player from the 1940s and magically weaving an article full of integrity, soul & the human condition. Best piece of Friesen writing I've ever read.
